Villarreal vs Barcelona match preview

Will Barcelona spark into life?

So far, Xavi’s team have certainly not started their title defence in convincing fashion, first held to a goalless draw by Getafe at Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Pérez, seeing Raphinha sent off in the first half.

Then, last Sunday, Barça did put three points on the board, but were certainly made to work for it by Cádiz.

It looked like being a very frustrating first outing at Estadi Olímpic de Montjuïc, before Gavi and Ferran Torres both struck in the final eight minutes of the evening.

So, despite being unbeaten and yet to concede a goal, Barcelona are just not quite clicking yet, and their credentials, as they seek to retain the La Liga title, will be sorely tested here.

Villarreal meanwhile continue to be inconsistent, kicking off their campaign with a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Real Betis.

This is, undoubtedly, the game of the weekend in La Liga, so can Villarreal defeat the champions at Estadio de la Cerámica?
